Why Milk is Bad for You

Milk does a body good right?  Well, real milk can, but what’s sold at the supermarket is worlds apart from what can be considered nutritious food.180 Degree Health wants you to understand, when it comes to modern pasteurized, homogenized,store-bought garbage, why milk is bad for you.

We are conditioned to believe that a diet without milk is dangerously low in vitamins and minerals.  If we don’t get enough calcium, our bones will just turn to dust and we’ll collapse.

Milk is a very nutritious food, but there are cons of milk often not highlighted.Many people have a very poor tolerance for it, particularly those who don’t produce much lactase – the digestive enzyme that digests milk sugar, or lactose.  Even more importantly, milk sold at the grocery store, because it has been pasteurized (heat-treated), the naturally-occuring temperature-sensitive lactase enzymes are destroyed.  This renders store-bought milk even more intolerable. Milk alternatives, like rice milk and soy milk are even worse – unless you are a professional farter.

There is also some indication that homogenization – the shattering of fat particles so that they are suspended and do not separate from the rest of the solution like normal milk, may play a role in atherosclerosis.  I wouldn’t call the evidence unquestionable, but it is suspicious.

Perhaps most importantly, considering how increasingly common it is for people’s digestion to be extremely impaired, is that the predominant type of protein in milk, casein, often goes through the digestive tract undigested,one of the biggest cons of milk.  This is problematic, because like gluten (grain protein), undigested casein can have strong psychoactive and allergenic properties.  It is well known that children on the autism spectrum almost invariably have horrendous digestion.  Removal of these proteins from grains and milk is absolutely essential if one hopes to make any headway in improving those debilitating conditions.  Just because you are not autistic doesn’t mean that you don’t suffer from the same similar complications of poor digestion either.  In fact, even low-grade depression or seasonal allergies is a sign that digestion is less than optimal. This understanding of why milk is bad for you may call for a removal of milk from your diet.

Our ancestors were able to drink milk to their heart’s content.They didn’t need milk alternatives; they drank the purest, healthiest, most unadulterated, fresh raw milk that’s capable of being produced.  The result was the attainment of a profound level of physical and mental vitality.

But times have changed, our collective health status has changed, and the milk has changed to an even greater degree.  If you want to drink milk, it is absolutely essential that you make the effort to obtain real milk,never “milk alternatives”, that has not been heated or homogenized.  Store-bought milk has proven time and time again to be a pathological substance for human consumption.  It offers no protection against osteoporosis or any other illness, and data from countries who consume the most milk is an indication, rather, that milk helps to cause bone loss, not prevent it.

Not only does store-bought milk not do a body good, but it is a ring leader in the declining health of all pasteurized milk-drinking cultures.  Along with fructose and vegetable oils, milk may be one of the first things that should be removed from the diet when attempting to improve or prevent any unwanted health condition.  There are plenty of other nutritious foods you can choose from to create a healthy diet and a healthy life for you and your family.  Learn more about why milk is bad for you,the cons of milk in today’s market, and healthy milk alternatives at www.180degreehealth.com.
